Productive, friendly, supportive, success driven
The work was inviting, and exciting. My home away from home. Spending 9 hours there the people becomes family. Management was excellent - not delegating but being proactively involved. Putting customers first. always growing you as a person targets was high but not unachievable. At the end of the day living the value - Africa is our home, we drive her growth.
ProsChallanging never a dull moment
ConsDistance I had to travel

Center Manager | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 04 Nov 2015
Diverse and innovative company
Standard Bank as a whole is a very fun place to work. There are a lot of energetic people who are passionate about what they do.
I have learned that whle the opportunities are definately there, an indiviual has to often manage themself upward rather than always relying on management to lead especially when it comes to growth or personal development. There will always be red tape, and it is often needed to make sure that the right controls are put into place and these almost always go hand in hand with politics which sometimes create the culture of silos. The hardest part of my job is to disintegrate these silos by creating platforms which allow for information sharing, circulation and storing
Prosbeautiful work building
ConsNo flexi working
Management Consultant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 22 Dec 2014
Salary good, needs to empliment conitues improvements.
I have grown in Confidence and people management, as i work with people.
Management is important, but more so in conjunction with Leadership, this is a gift that one needs to nurture and renew daily.
My hardest part if being overworked, but in that i feel that it is exactly what one needs to test how resilient you can be.
I enjoy my work because of the dedicated people i work with, i learn everyday as we work with many customers.
At times tings seems very challenging, but in this one can only grow and rise above.
ProsExperience and exposure. lots of personal growth
Consinsufficient man power.

Productive, fun to work with
I enjoyed my job due to the constant challenges it brought on a daily basis. I have the brain of a Marketer and am analytical, so i enjoy coming up with new ideas to interact with clients. I have'nt studied, however i would like to get my Marketing diploma.
I work with amazing, resilient Team, we are always helping each other with best practice and motivate one another as we have the same common goal. The hardest part of the job is to let business go due to margin constraints or unfavourable client profiling as each person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.
ProsWe are awarded for revenue and best improved teams
ConsYour Portfolio Manager can become demanding
